Premier League’s worst finishers 23/24: Chelsea stars take ‘top’ two spots

Below are the top 10 players owned by their xG through the opening weeks of the Premier League campaign. Chelsea and Wolves dominate the list.

1] Nicolas Jackson (Chelsea) – 2.8
Expected goals: 3.8
Actual goals: 1

A lot of money have been spent and Jackson is the closest thing Chelsea have to a goalscorer. Which looks like being a problem for a few months. A Chelsea star finished last campaign at the top of this list.

2] Enzo Fernández (Chelsea) – 1.7
Expected goals: 1.7
Actual goals: 0

A missed penalty against West Ham United was poor already but two shots on target from 12 attempted suggests you don’t get much for £100m-plus these days.

3] Ollie Watkins (Aston Villa) – 1.6
Expected goals: 2.6
Actual goals: 1

A Premier League goal finally came against Chelsea.

4] Marcus Rashford (Manchester Utd) – 1.5
Expected goals: 2.5
Actual goals: 1

Nobody on this list has taken more shots than Rashford’s 26. Hitting the target with only 23% of your shots is very poor.

5] Neal Maupay (Brentford) – 1.4
Expected goals: 1.4
Actual goals: 0

6] Eberechi Eze (Crystal Palace) – 1.3
Expected goals: 2.3
Actual goals: 1

He has taken 26 shots. Which is a lot for a non-striker.

7] Philip Billing (Bournemouth) – 1.2
Expected goals: 1.2
Actual goals: 0

He has only one shot on target from 12 attempts.

8] Mario Lemina (Wolves) – 1.0
Expected goals: 1
Actual goals: 0

9] Fábio Silva (Wolves) -1.0
Expected goals: 1
Actual goals: 0

10] Ansu Fati (Brighton) – 1.0
Expected goals: 1
Actual goals: 0
